Periodic Table of Fashion

Periodic Table of Fashion

Just the thought of looking at the periodic table makes us cringe because of everything that has to be remembered. But thinking about how it has helped us know so much information by just looking at it, gives us some sense of relief. So, thinking about it that way, periodic tables aren’t a confusing problem—they’re a helpful problem-solver.

What if we make things interesting and give the periodic table a fashion-forward twist? Sounds crazy, right?

Well, we recently came across this really amazing periodic table by Sophie and Trey that every style enthusiast would love. The best part about this table is that it has everything you need to rid you from your everyday dressing woes, from color tones belonging from every category like jewel, neutral, bright and soft, to fashion articles to help you decide what goes well with what and how to accessorize your complete look. It’s more like your virtual closet that answers the most important question that you don’t normally get an easy answer for: “What should I wear today?”

    With the help of this table, we decided to put you out of your sartorial misery and help you with deciding how you can dress yourself on a daily basis while keeping yourself connected with the trends. Well, they say you aren’t completely dressed until you wear the right accessories, so why don’t we see how these everyday outfits can be matched with the right accessories (by the way, they don’t actually say that, but you need accessories to complete your look along with smile, so why not).

    The essential fashion equation

    Yes, there’s an easy equation for this. If you have the essentials sorted, the rest is a piece of cake. You can pair your favorite top with your least favorite bottom, go with an all-black everything look and can also accessorize a rather casual outfit, making it look fancy. So, let’s give you the equation:

    Basic + Dressy + Fixer + Accessories   =  Your Wardrobe for Every day

    Now that you have a clear equation, let’s work on unlocking this achievement of dressing up flawlessly every day without much effort.

    1. Begin with the basics

    Your basic section of the wardrobe is usually based on neutral colors and staples pieces. If you take a look at the table, a number of ideas to adorn your basic clothing needs will start popping in your head. A basic top in ivory, pencil skirt in charcoal grey accessorized with an ink blue pair of pointed toe heels and a satchel or messenger will make up for an effortless work look. If you are looking for a more exuberant look for your everyday needs, build your basic wardrobe with a mix of bright and neutral or bright and soft tones.

    What you’ll need

    • Basic tops and blouses
    • Sweat shirts
    • Tees
    • Pencil skirts
    • Maxi skirts
    • Culottes
    • Tailored pants
    • Cropped pants
    • A pair of dark washed and light washed jeans

    Trend alert

    Casual and minimal is actually the new black for this season. However, the rule has a stylish shift to it: the simpler the outfit, the dressier the accessories. However, for an everyday look, keep it subtle, without making anything look out of proportion. The table has all the right accessories for you to pick from. Keeping up with trends, the basic white button down is definitely a thing because the runways had them all, from shirts, dresses, to coats and jacket. The classic button down surely has elevated its way to the top.

    The pantone colors of this year: serenity and rose quartz can easily be integrated in your basic wardrobe because of their soothing yet versatile appeal. The colors can be worn both formally and casually.

    2. Deal with dressy

    This is the category where you can be as creative as you want. You can get your hands on colors, prints, textures, patterns, shimmer or just about anything that can easily work as fancy or vivid. For your rather dressier looks, go with jewel and bright tone. If you really need to turn the colors down, then go for pairing them with soft tones. Tangerine, blood orange, cranberry and emerald green are colors that have a quintessential appeal to them and are just the right hues for night and evening wear.

    What you’ll need

    • Dresses
    • Skirts
    • Bold prints
    • Sequins
    • Fringes
    • Maxi Dresses
    • LBDs
    • LWDs
    • Skirts
    • Gowns
    • Slip dresses

    Trend alert

    There still is a love affair with the 70s going on in the fashion world. Designers for the season were particularly interested in incorporating the 90s and 70s with some modern alteration in their creations. Voluminous ruffles, Victorian and English floral prints, puffy sleeves, cropped details, fringed sequins, and the return of the slip dress all indicates that there is some serious 70s renaissance is happening.

    Make sure you have some romantic floral prints and dresses with bold stripes and solid color play hanging in your dressier section of the closet. Oh, and you may have not noticed but silk PJs with boisterous prints are now worn formally. So, if you really are going to go with the trends, choose the accessories and tones from the periodic table and invest in some glamorous silk PJs. A Spanish spin to prints and cuts was witnessed as a key trend on the runways; you can wear the trend through Spanish-looking prints in your dresses.

    For all the good reasons, off-the-shoulder outfits managed to stay in vogue for the season. So, if you catch your eyes on a ruffled off-the-shoulder top, get that!

    3. Fix it up with the fixers

    The fixers are more like completers—the cherry on top. Don’t you always need a layer, a spring jacket, a cardigan or a belt to finish off the outfit details? Well, that’s what this little section of your wardrobe will be based on. You would not need much to add to this part but make sure you choose the right colors so that one fixer can work well with a number of outfits.

    What you’ll need

    • A light spring jacket
    • Simple pretty cardigan
    • Chunky belts
    • Scarves

    Trend Alert

    You will be surprised, but jackets and cardigans are still going strong in spring. In fact, they will be gracing the streets this year, more than ever. Why? Because that’s what we’re seeing in fashion shows and on runways. Jackets, sweatshirts, oversized hoodies will be all you need—yes, you can leave your pants at home. Pair them with knee-high boots and stockings to give your legs some cover. As for belts, they are the ultimate fixer and your friend in sartorial needs.

    4. Accessorize for perfection

    Your style equation is never complete without the right shoes, jewelry and bags. So, carefully plan this portion according to the table. You have a number of neutral and bright colors to pick your shoes and bags from. Take a look at the accessories in the periodic table, and you’ll know what you need for your day-to-day outfits.

    What you’ll need

    • Bags
    • Clutches
    • Heels
    • Chunky sandals
    • Flats
    • Watch
    • Statement earrings and necklaces
    • Delicate ear studs and necklaces

    Trend Alert

    The trends in accessories are more or less the same; shoes get sequined embellishment stone details. However, the more chunky they are, the trendier. Thankfully, we’re still not being too hard on ourselves and going for more flats than heels. As for bags, invest in a chic half-moon bag and some bold colored bags with funky details. The jewelry has a standout element, but they are not heavy on the wearer, so you are free to wear those statement earrings and on a regular day; nothing’s better than a statement watch and delicate jewelry.

    Stay stylish divas, and get the table printed and pated on your wardrobe to minimize the struggle.

    Colors this season transcend cultural and gender norms. Vivid brights give way to excitement and optimism, though quiet stability prevails in this season’s palette

    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

    8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

    We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

    On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

    Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

    1. Smart Door Locks

    A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

    2. Smart Kitchen Tools

    Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

    3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

    If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

    4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

    These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

    5. Nest Thermostat

    This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

    6. Smart Lighting

    Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

    7. Google Chromecast Ultra

    Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

    8. Canary

    This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
